How to Get Rid of Cooking Odor Smell, Cooking Odor Removal, Cooking Odor Apartment, Cooking Odor Condo Using Odorox Hydroxyls
There are few things more frustrating than being in a home, whether it is yours or a friend’s, and being unable to concentrate or enjoy yourself because of a bad smell in the space. When there is a bad odor in the house, especially if it is coming from prior cooking, it is impossible to relax and enjoy yourself without thinking about how to eliminate kitchen odors.
One problem that goes hand-in-hand with cooking is trying to get rid of the smell of cooking when you are done with your meal. While any kind of cooking or baking will produce odors that you will want to remove from your home, there are some culprits that everyone immediately recognizes that can be very unpleasant. If you have ever fried onions, baked fish, or cooked a curry with a lot of spices, then you have already experienced the problems that can occur due to kitchen odors, leaving you wondering how to eliminate cooking odors.
Fish is a main problem when cooking, and even though it is incredibly healthy and a great way to get protein into your diet, when you cook it, you will have a fishy smell that can be difficult to get rid of. The tissue of your fish actually has a chemical in it called trimethylamine oxide. While this is an odorless chemical, once it is exposed to oxygen it will begin to break down. As it breaks down, it is changed into derivatives of ammonia. This is one of the most noxious odors that you can have in your kitchen. Because of the smell that can be produced when you cook fish, you need to have a plan as to how to get rid of cooking odors before you even start cooking.
There are some ways to prepare your fish that will reduce the triethylamine oxide present in the fish. Soaking your fish in milk and then refrigerating it for a few hours before you actually cook it can reduce the levels of triethylamine oxide. Unfortunately, this will not completely remove any of the fishy odors that you are used to when you do prepare and cook your fish.
Killing a fish will immediately make fish enzymes and bacteria convert TMAO into TMA (trimethylamine). This is what gives fish its characteristic odor. By rinsing the TMA off of the surface of the fish with tap water or treating the fish with acidic ingredients, you can work to bind the TMA and cause it to be much less volatile, preventing the odors from reaching your nose.
Freshwater fish are milder than saltwater fish, and this is due in part to the fact that they do not accumulate TMAO because of the differences in their environment. However, some freshwater fish tend to taste or smell muddy due to the presence of compounds that are produced by algae the fish eats.Another smell that can be difficult to get rid of in your home is the smell of onions. Odors from onions can actually damage the fabrics in your home, including carpeting and clothing.
Other foods that are closely related to onions and will have similar smells when cooking include chives, leeks, garlic, and shallots.
The amino acid alliin in these foods will convert into allicin when the food is chopped, which will create sulfide compounds rather quickly. It is these compounds that are so smelly and contribute to the odor we associate with onions.
Curry and other spices will also produce odors in your home and leave you wondering how to get rid of kitchen odors. While the spices themselves don’t cause the odors, it is the change in their chemical composition while they are heated that causes the smell. When cooked, these spices release a fat-soluble essential oil that creates the aroma.
Heat will make these vapors spread through your home and increase the way that they smell. While curry smells amazing, the odors can absorb into your clothing, wallpaper, and other surfaces. It’s difficult to remove the smell with just air fresheners, and Odorox hydroxyl processors are the best way to remove these odors. This equipment will be able to remove these odors not only from your kitchen, but also throughout the rest of your home, as well.
Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers
Below is a brief testimonial outlining my experience with Hydroxyl Environmental's MDU (Mobile Disinfectant Unit). My mother suffered a diabetic stroke in Feb, 2005. Her blood sugars have been a constant battle since that date. She survives on a feeding tube. Our family provides home care for my mother at my sisters. In the evenings her blood sugars would jump to 25-28 and first thing in the morning they would test around 12-18 (5-6 is normal range). She also had an issue with an air pump that keeps her mattress inflated to help prevent bed sores.
In the summer of 2007 her air pump failed and we had to wait nearly a week for a replacement. During that time mom suffered a bed sore on her spine. In short order the sore grew to approximately 16 inches in length and was open nearly 1.5" at the widest point. It took our wound nurse incredibly countless hours to try and close this wound that in most cases ends in a fatality. This sore persisted for nearly six months before we were successful in closing it with the use of a vacuum. In the early part of this year we experienced another bed sore. Actually two, one on each heel as a result of an air mattress pump failure again.
This time a friend of mine spoke about the MDU that had helped others with medical issues. We had nothing to lose so we installed it in my mother's bedroom. Almost immediately our mothers breathing began to improve and within days my sister and niece reported my mother's blood sugars had returned to levels under 10, a spectacular improvement comparative to her results these past three years.
After only two weeks there were significant signs her bed sores on her heels were healing weeks ahead of her previous bout. I don't know what the significance of the MDU unit is other than to tell you it has performed way beyond our wildest expectations. I will and do recommend this technology to anyone seeking improved health regarding breathing, bed sores, or blood sugars if they are an issue. I wish I was more scientific about our results but the proof is clearly in the Hydroxyl MDU unit........
Test one today, the results will last a lifetime!
I would like to share the experience my family has had since bringing an Odorox Slim Line machine in to our apartment.
Please allow me to start by providing some background information. My daughter, who is 6, and I live in a 900 sq ft apartment in a 24 unit building in north Bismarck. We have lived there for over 5 years. My daughter has many health issues including chronic constipation, reflux, sinus issues and her IGG subclass II is low (basic immune deficiency).
Since bringing the Odorox unit in to our home in January, we have had our healthiest winter ever. In the past she has suffered from repeat sinus infections, often times each lasting more than one month. Prior to starting the Odorox Machine she had been fighting the same infection for over three months. We tried three separate rounds of oral antibiotics, an IVIG infusion and IV antibiotics and saw little if any results. Two weeks after instaiing the machine, her congestion was gone and has not returned. Her only infection since was an ear infection. This in itself is nothing sh01i of amazing. She has never gone this long without being placed on some so1i of medicine. We tried allergy medicines, antibiotics (oral and iv), ENT involvement, removed her tonsils and adenoids and nothing provided her with any relief. We also did both skin and blood testing for allergies, both of which came back negative. She herself has noticed the difference and comments on all of the different things she can now smell (flowers, lotions, soaps).
I almost need to mention that I am surprised how well this little machine controls odors.
I can no longer smell what other people in the building are cooking or if they are smoking.
I am truly amazed at the difference this machine has made. I will admit I was highly skeptical that this "magic machine" would do anything for us. In fact, I have even tried shutting the machine off for three days, only to tum it back on as her congestion was returning. I am sold as to the effectiveness and validity of this machine.
